HDR modes have taken mobile cameras to next level. 

It stacks multiple images to capture good details and reduce the noise. 

 

Power of AI is taking mobile photography to next level.

I hope AI will be implemented in DSLR (future) 

 

I'm bored of Nikon/Cannon/Sony, stopped using my DSLR from past two years. 

Want see a proper DSLR from companies like Apple, Google and Samsung.

If that's the case, Apple will kill the market with it's design which is still imaginary. I somehow surely think it won't. But, this can be very much expected from Samsung and Google :)

Check out the google nighsight. 
It is doing miracles. 

DSLRS are dead in my opinion, unless you are serious into photography.

I think these brands are happy with mobiles, they mostly won't venture into cameras, which is already a dead market.

I don't think they're miracles. A photographer goes through a lot of thought process, experiments with multiple exposure settings, angles before taking a photograph.

These phones although good are taking the essence of photography. Just a tap on the shutter button and some random filters, a photograph is made. That's the true meaning of photography. Photography is capturing memories in it's true essence. These phones are creating plastic memories.

A true manually controlled photograph is true photograph. These are just plastic ones. So not miracles anymore.

And I don't think DSLR market is a dead one. If so by now big brands like Nikon, Sony and Canon would enter into mobile phones camera.

And there's no comparison between a mobile camera and a DSLR.

Mobile is full automatic which requires no effort and feel where as DSLR is a manual one and a device that should be controlled manually with a feel towards the art.

NO OFFENSE

No offence taken my friend.

I can say that i will agree with your points to a certain extent.

 

Every device has their own advantages/disadvantages. 

I followed photography when i was young.  

 

Recently, I have seen a major shift in mobile photography. 

Most of the flagships mobiles are matching DSLRS in good light conditions.

Low light is where DSLR shine, but  Apple/Google algorithms made a huge impact in this area.  

 

 

Let me compare low light photography. 

Imagine shooting a wide area in low light, what you need from a DSLR?

 

1. Tripod stand
2. Wide angle lens
3. find a proper place to mount your stand 
4. Remote

 

With modern flagships, you can take pictures hand held. 

They are compact and you have them with you 24x7.
Quality may not be as good as DSLR but they are catching up.

In 2010, I agree that DSLR is way ahead of mobile. 

In 2020, mobiles will eat into DSLR.

Very well explained buddy.

 

But I can't imagine myself shooting with a mobile phone with all touch buttons... Just can't imagine that. The feel we get when we hold a DSLR and the mighty zoom lens and then searching an area for mounting your tripod and an amazing image and appreciation from people is a whole different thing...

 

Isn't it?

 

And yeah, thanks for taking it in a positive way.

For me it is a pain. I used to do following things before a trip.

1. Charge your camera (every day)
2. Empty your memory cards
3. Carry a bad, with two lens

4. Change lens depending on angle

5. After the trip, copy pictures to a laptop, edit the raw images using lightroom.

6. Share it on travel platforms

With mobile 
1. Point and Shoot
2. Edit it in mobile
3. Share it on travel platforms

90% of pictures are viewed on small screen, you cannot find any noise that is generated by mobile cameras.

Both are good in their own ways.
Advantages with mobiles? they are compact and easy to carry. We never miss a moment. 

Dslr on other can generates sharp images, which cannot be achieved using a mobile. 

 

I agree that people stopped buying Dslr,
They are expensive to buy,

Tough to carry.


But given a choice, I would pickup a Dslr over a mobile.

@Tapahasu Thanks, it's a wonderful country and a must visit place. Our trip was around 10-12 days,  The trip was wonderful visiting old temples, grand monuments, historical places and national parks, lakes, religious places....nepal got it all...though we went in may 2018, weather was very pleasant except in chitwan and Lumbini. we loved Pokhara. Don't Miss it :) We didn't plan for annapurna trek this time. May be some other time.

      Dear ALL,
      I am planning to travel to tirupati from Hyderabad by in a automatic car.
      Don't want to take bad roads. Can anyone please suggest the best route?
    • By travel.rtc
      This trip happened  during Novemeber 1st week 2018 and November first being our 9th Marriage Anniversary - we wanted to celebrate it in Mysore hence drived down to Mysore and to Ooty .
       
      Started 10:00P:M from Hyderabad and highway was little busy with all RTC and Private Buses towards Bangalore and different parts of Rayalaseema.....we stopped at Kurnool Toll Tax and then started again but started being on a working day after tiring office work has shown the tiredness and me being only driver for the entire trip took good breaks ...we stopped between Kurnool and Anantapur near some petrol bunk and after Anantapur in the early morning to take some power naps ....Reached Bangalore Outskirts by 7:30 ..
       
      The Morning Mystic view of Nandi Hills and surroundings was awesome and Bangalore Highway is very very super road except few speed breakers else so much fun to drive straight road.
      -- We Stopped at Hotel Nandi Upachar : https://goo.gl/maps/LwP1NeFtZoG2 
      Hotel was very very Decent and Has Nice Rest Rooms and ample parking place  - had quick refresh and Nice break Fast and there was Some Minister Visiting the Hotel and traffic was halted ...we had to further wait for 30 more minutes and started at 9:30 A:M and it took us some time to cross Bangalore and Hit Mysore Highway - as usual Bangalore traffic took a toll on us and Mysore highway was little busy.
       
      We Stopped at Kamath  for quick Lunch and then Started for Mysore .
      I have a friend who works in Travel agency in Bangalore , he generally takes care of hotel bookings or cab bookings if needed whenever we are around  he has booked a room for us in Mysore  at Hotel Vyshak Residency - Hotel was good and has Hot water Supply all the day  - This )hot water)  is one of the must for the Hotels around that place in Winters 
       
      -- Next Day Early Morning we went for Chamundi Temple  - Chamundeshwari Devi -One of the ShaktiPeeta ,We had good Darshan and had some prasadam at their kitchen.
       
      While returning, at the Parking Lot My mother overheard some one saying Ooty from Here is 160 kms - She immediatley said to me its 160 kms which means like Hyderabad - Nizamabad [Nizamabad being my Native]
      She asked me ,Shall we go to Ooty too.
      Who can deny an drive down to Ooty and I said immediately OK and haven't said anything about Road -,she was not aware of Ghat road and being traveled  on Butter smooth Roads from Hyderabad till Mysore she expected it to be same straight roads....but later she was scared to the max after Gudalur when it was pitch dark and raining and Ghat Road Started
       
      We had a quick visit to Shri Ganapathi Sachidanda Ashram and started for Ooty at 2:30 P:M  - if any one has this in bucket list when they visit Mysore and wants decent stay they can ask for room in Ashram campus and it is pretty less compared to outside while returning  to Hyderabad we have to stay in Mysore as it was night when we returned to Mysore from Ooty and we asked an room for accommodation as  it falls left while entering Mysore and they gave us a Big room was charged 500 Rs - all facilities were provided indeed 
       
      Took little while to cross Mysore , later we had took some time to find an ATM to get cash and has to look for ATMs in NanjanGud , the Route taken was Via :
      NanjanGud  - > Gundlupete ->Bandipur -> Gudalur -> Ooty
       
      ---- Took Right turn after GundluPete  and went 11+ kms to visit Gopalaswamy Betta ....But now cars are not allowed to be driven till the temple and one must Take Karnataka Tourism Buses ...and those will be plied till 4:000 P:M By the time we went there its was 4:00 and we dont has an Option and it started getting dark  and we started back , returned to Gundlupete and reached Bandipur
      Same friend of mine booked a Room for us in  3 Star Hotel - Hotel Preethi Classic http://www.hotelpreethiclassic.com   which was closer to city center and had quick tour of Tea Factory , Botanical gardens did shopping at Tibet Market - Finding Good food in Ooty is little tough and we had our breakFast at A2B and its pretty decent and good .
       
      Return Journey was Simple - Stopping here and there for few clicks and my car being Wagon R and people cautioned about clutch issues generally occur in that route and asked me to take some breaks and give some time for car and then start ...slowly reached Gudalur and it took sweet 4 hrs including photo breaks and tea breaks , Reached Mysore by 8:00 P:M  ,me being no mood to drive  wanted a break and i thought of starting next day early morning , and went to Ganapathi Sachithananda Aashram  -
       
      They allotted a room  , we went to near by restaurant and had dinner - Next Day Morning after a good nap and fresh-up started at 5:30 A:M to Bangaore- Hyderabad , Had Break fast at A2B Food Court after Mysore on Bangalore Highway [Excellent and Neat rest Rooms] 
      Crossed Bangalore in midst of heavy traffic and being Monday it was very very tedious to cross Bangalore - Had stop after Bangalore at Shell Bunk and topped up the fuel ,they have checked the car and i took their engine oil and they did the oil change in quick time and started for Hyderabad . Bangalore Highway is one of the best roads i have driven and being day time we can find less traffic on Roads and one can certainly get bored too ...went into Anantapur town in search of a good mess for Lunch but traffic made to change our plans and we stopped at Dhaba some where in between Anantapur and Kurnool  highway .
       
      After having Some Rotis started for Hyderabad which was Straight Road with speed breakers here and there

    • By Pralay
      It was Dec of 2018, my wife had a full week plan in the Christmas to go to Calcutta to meet her family. We usually travel together, be it for a trip or a visit to our hometown, Calcutta. But this time it was impossible for me to get a leave sanction of a week or 10 days, due to my office commitments. Without any other choice she booked her flight to Calcutta during Christmas.
       
      At the same time I thought, I can get 4 days for a trip, 23rd to 26th , if I can manage 2 days leave. ( I have Saturday office).
      Since long, two of the many things of my bucket list were:
       
      1)      A solo road trip in my car
      2)      A visit to Hampi
       
      And this time I realised this is a perfect time to tick off both from my bucket list.
       
      And as we travel together, my wife was quite upset about my plan. But as a good friend, we never stopped each other for doing anything. So yes, finally I managed to get the leave sanctioned and this is the tale of my journey to tick off the two things at a go, “A solo road trip to Hampi!”
       
      There are lot of posts about Hampi in the internet; so, not posting about my stay details further. Hampi is having all sorts of hotels or stay options depending upon your budget & preferences. So just limiting my log to the route, photos I have taken and other small details.
       
      I usually do my research on the route rather than what Google is suggesting. Google was suggesting the route via Raichur but I took this route:-
       
      Hyderabad – Kurnool – Alur - Bellary – Kamalapur – Hampi.
       
      Took numerous breaks for photos, food or stretching, so I had to drive nearly 10 hours before I reach Hampi, else I could have reached much earlier. So let’s get started..
       
      Cranked the engine at exact 6 AM:-
       

       
      Reached hill park restaurant, Jadcherla around 7.15 AM, to take the breakfast:-
      Location: https://goo.gl/maps/CYntB9cfixQ2
       

       

       
      Around 10 o’clock reached Pullur toll plaza, near Kurnool:-
       

       
      Somewhere between Alur and Bellary:-

       
      There are plenty of options available once you enter the Bellary town. I avoid rice at lunch during drive. So, had a Masala Dosa at one of the food joints. I observed that, food options at Bellary are more on the opposite side of the road while going to Hampi from Hyderabad,. So in case you want to explore the town while going to Hampi, park your car on your side, cross the road & explore. Plenty of options are available.
       
      Finally around 4 O’clock in the evening I reached Hampi!
       

       
      Now, let some snaps taken in and around Hampi do the talking:-
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Next day morning, trekked all the way up to Anjana's Hill to experience this beautiful Sunrise:-
       

       

       

       

       

       
      Again let some pictures do some talking..
       

       

       

       
      Day 3:-
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Near Tungabhdra River..

       
      Evening of Day 3, once again I trekked all the way up to Matanga Hill to watch the Sunset, and the trek was quite tough than the Anajana’s Hill's..

       
      But once I reached the top, the tough trek had paid off.. 

       
      This view.. 

       
      When you finally managed to get a selfie with the beautiful background, but someone photo-bombed it.. 
       

       
      Found an interesting structure, once I get down from the top :-
       

       
      The famous Virupaksha Temple at dusk..

       
      Had a lovely dinner at Mango Tree:-
      Location: https://goo.gl/maps/VsqAkovkBHz

       
      It was the last day and I had to head back to Hyderabad. So had my breakfast at my hotel before I started off around 8.30 in the morning:-
       

       

       
      Touched a magic figure in between.. 30000 & up!!
       

       
      Had a decent lunch at Food pyramid:-
      Location: https://goo.gl/maps/EiZQWDuuPeH2

       
      Reached Home around 5 o’clock. “A solo road trip to Hampi!”, done & dusted!!
       
      Untill next time, much love, my love..
       

       

       

       
      Cheers!
      Pralay
